Cancer-causing chemical found in nearly 100 common soaps and shampoos: Study

Natural News -


If you use store-bought, conventionally-formulated shampoos, conditioners, body  washes and other similar personal care products on a regular basis, you could be  exposing yourself to high doses of a cancer-causing chemical that few people are  even aware exists. The Center for Environmental Health (CEH) recently published  the findings of an independent study it conducted which found that 98 tested  shampoos, soaps and other personal care products contained high levels of  cocamide diethanolamine (cocamide DEA), a hidden foaming and thickening agent  that is a known carcinogen.

Most NaturalNews readers are probably  already familiar with some of the other more well-known chemical culprits found  in personal care products, which include things like petroleum-based parabens or  sodium lauryl sulfate, for instance. Many companies have already voluntarily  phased these and other “big name” chemicals out of their products to meet  growing demand for clean, toxin-free products. But there are still a number of  other harmful chemicals out there like cocamide DEA that continue to be used in  prominent personal care product brands, including some that are marketed as  “natural” and organic.

Perhaps not surprisingly, several large corporate  brands, including Colgate Palmolive and Paul Mitchell, were identified in the  study as manufacturing products that contain cocamide DEA. Other brands that  might come as more of a surprise include a lemon-scented kitchen hand wash sold  by Trader Joe’s and a ginger shampoo made by a company  known as “Organix.” Other implicated brands include American Crew, Palmolive,  Equate (Walmart), At One With Nature, Simple Pleasures and Moroccanoil.
